Can wiping MacBook with a wet cloth alot really damage it's coating? In what way does it damage it?
I'm not sure about a mac book. But I use alcohol and or Lysol wipes when cleaning my MBP. I'm not sure this helps.
The only way to properly clean it is a microfiber cloth moistened with water. Nothing stronger is required unless its been abused.
I should have clarified what I meant. I clean the aluminum with alcohol or Lysol wipes. The screen, I use a micro fiber with screen cleaner or just a mist of water.
No. Whoever told you that is wrong and shouldn't be allowed near a computer.
Apple even provides instructions, right here:
What about screen cleaning fluid? Does anyone know what it's made of?
Usually it's mostly water, with some isopropyl alcohol and other mild solvents mixed in.
Edit: Crazy what you can find with Google, here's the exact composition, 99.1% water with some other crap mixed in
Do you think if you wipe the aluminium parts of the MacBook with the fluid, it would damage it over time?
The aluminium on the Mac is anodized to protect it against the elements including cleaning solvents. However it's not recommended to use abrasive solutions; some things like the sweat on your hands can cause pitting in aluminium, so just be sure to wipe it down once in a while.
Also don't use sandpaper or scrubbing pads.
I usually use rubbing alcohol with a paper towel as it both cleans and disinfects.
